Purpose and priorities of award

The award is intended to support the making and presentation of opera productions during 2013, in line with the Arts Councilis published policy for opera.

Applicants may seek support for the production of opera at varying scales, such as:

  • Main scale opera for presentation to audiences in larger venues
  • Small and medium scale opera, for presentation to audiences in small/medium venues

The emphasis of the award centres on encouraging a collaborative approach to opera production based on partnerships between artists, producers and presenters. The term producers here refers to artists/individuals/ organisations with a significant track record in opera production and the term presenters can here refer to venues, festivals or others. Proposals seeking funding to present opera in unusual off-site locations will also be considered, provided they meet the criteria. The objective of the award is to encourage new approaches to the presentation of opera to audiences.

Who is eligible to apply?

The award is open to organisations, groups and individuals working in collaborative partnerships. Applicants in receipt of Arts Council funding via the RFO/AF/APG grant programmes will be eligible to apply, provided it is clear that the activity for which funding is sought is additional to and is distinctively complementary to activity supported by any other funds provided by the Arts Council.
